Sundogs: Journey to the Great Windmill - Kay Elliot and Barb Bjornson

Sundogs: Journey to the Great Windmill

by Kay Elliott, illustrated by Barb Björnson

When there's a special dog in your life, oftentimes it feels so right that it’s like they chose you.

Sundogs: Journey to the Great Windmill brings dogs to life in a way like never before, taking the reader on a journey to Planet of the Sundogs where every dog’s unique personality shines through the vibrant color of their fur. Based on the bright spots of light in the sky called sundogs, author Kay Elliott imagines a magical place where dogs play freely, but dream of riding the Great Windmill to their perfect homes. Join SuSu, Yogi, Harley, Bo, Zeke, and Juno as they search for the Great Windmill and are sent to Earth to “love and be loved beyond their wildest sundog dreams.


If you find Kay Elliott daydreaming, she is walking with her dogs on a sunny beach somewhere! She appreciates all things colorful, and relaxes by knitting and reading. Retired after thirty years of traveling as a flight attendant, she is most happy at home with her dogs, Zeke and Juno. She and her husband, Pat, have raised three children and five dogs in Richfield, Minnesota. Sundogs: Journey to the Great Windmill is her first book.


Barb Björnson is a published illustrator living in New Brighton, Minnesota. She loves creating characters that come alive on the page as was the case with Sundogs: Journey to the Great Windmill. Barb recently became a grandmother and can’t wait to introduce the arts to her new grandson (he already loves books). More of her work can be viewed at

Barb Björnson has illustrated several children’s books through Tristan Publishing, Lerner Publishing, Teach Me Tapes, Compass Publishing and Beaver’s Pond Press.
